Update 2: The CW’s “Reign” Ratings Dip for Season Finale

Update 2: Adjusted down in the finals, the season finale of “Reign” settled for a 0.4 adults 18-49 rating with 1.24 million viewers. The demo rating ties the show’s series low.

The CW’s “Vampire Diaries” season finale led into “Reign” with a 0.8 and 1.61 million viewers.

Update: While down in total viewers, the season finale of The CW’s “Reign” matched last week’s 0.5 adults 18-49 rating, at least according to fast national data.

Its viewership average clocked in at 1.26 million.

Earlier in the night, The CW aired the season finale of “The Vampire Diaries” to an improved 0.8 rating with 1.57 million viewers.

Benefiting from its status as the inaugural season finale but suffering from its position against the eagerly anticipated “Grey’s Anatomy” season finale, Thursday’s edition of “Reign” held steady in the overnight metered market ratings.

The episode, which saw King Henry meet his demise at the hands of his own son, matched last week’s 1.1 overnight household rating.

After posting a 1.1 in the overnights, last week’s “Reign” settled for a 0.5 adults 18-49 rating with 1.34 million viewers in the Nielsen finals. There is no guarantee Thursday’s season finale also held steady in those categories.

Prior to “Reign,” The CW aired the season finale of its veteran “The Vampire Diaries.” That broadcast earned a 1.4 overnight household rating, which marked a gain of 0.1 from last week’s 1.3.

Last week’s 1.3 overnight translated into a series low 0.7 adults 18-49 rating with 1.50 million viewers in the finals.
